WORKING WITH MEN AFFECTED BY VIOLENCE
In Australia today up to one in three victims of family violence are male. While many services have quite rightly been established over the past three decades to support female victims of family violence, the needs of male victims remain largely unmet.
The issue of men affected by violence in intimate relationships has been reported for many years and now workers in the domestic violence, community and family relationship sectors are acknowledging this problem and seeking out training for their workers. This training program is for health, welfare and community workers and provides information, strategies and a model for working with men affected by violence in their relationships.
Training program includes:
Background to the problem and context violence and abuse occurs in |The affect of domestic violence on a person - what’s different for men | Strategies for working with men from a strengths based perspective | A model for working with men affected by violence | Building services for male victims of DV into your agency – what you need to consider | Promoting work with male victims of DV
